About the Silver Owl 1 oz - differential taxation
More than 2,000 years ago, the Attic tetradrachm with the owl motif was the most influential coin in the world. The owl symbolizes strength, wisdom and knowledge. Now the New Zealand Mint is reissuing this beautiful antique silver coin. The silver bullion coin is official tender with a nominal value of 2 dollars with a small premium on the actual silver value. The special thing about the coin is not only its beauty and its historical value, but also the ribbed edge. This rim allows for easy storage as the ribbing allows the coins to interlock and stack perfectly.
Design of the coin
The motif side of the high-relief coin shows the majestic owl standing on a branch in front of a hammered, reflective background. Her large, also reflective eyes are turned towards the viewer. To the right of the owl are three Greek letters: AΘE.
A = alpha
Θ = theta
E = epsilon
AΘE (A-TH-E) is the ancient Greek abbreviation for Athens - the actual publisher of the tetradrachm, which served as a model for this coin. To the left of the owl is an olive branch, the symbol of peace, and a crescent moon. Below the coin is the writing: 1OZ 999 FINE SILVER. The reverse of the coin features the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on a reflective hammered background and the inscription: ELIZABTEH II NIUE TWO DOLLARS.
